According to Fabrizio Romano, Udogie is going to joinSpurs. The 19-year-old wing-back has been the subject of talks with Udinese over the past week, and it looks like the club have won the race to sign him. He joined for a fee in excess of 20m, but will stay at Udinese until 2023.

It looks as though the 35-year-old centre-back is willing to help Barcelona amend their current issues with their wage structure for a second time after he signed a deal in the same fashion. It is reported that he is confident of earning starting minutes next season, and hopes to convince the manager of his place after seeing less time on the pitch.

According to Calciomercato, the Bianconeri are considering moving on Moise Kean. Massimiliano Allegri is said to have upset him after he missed a meeting.

Mertens signed with the Turkish side on a deal that runs through 2023.
